SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Payables Workcenter.
  2. Go to Supplier Accounts view.
  3. Select Show all Employees in the dropdown view.
  4. Select employee ABC.
  5. You will find that the current account determination group is XXXX.


You cannot manually enter or change the account determination group for an employee as this is the standard behavior.


The Account determination group for employee is not maintained manually.The system will automatically determine the account determination group and this is always XXXX. You can see this account determination group in Fine tuning activity Account determination group and under Groups for Supplier.

When the first expense report is generated for the employee and posted to accounting, then the account determination group will be triggered from the backend and the related ledger accounts is activated. But the account determination group for all employees will be XXXX.

So if an employee account already has an account determination group assigned, it is not possible to change it.
